Math

The weekend ended all too fast, and as I already remarked to at least one of you,  reality is highly over-rated. So, it’s time to escape into a little fanciful math fom the internet.
 
ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
 
OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
 
SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item she doesn’t need.
 
GENERAL EQUATIONS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future unitl he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
 
The question to ponder: "What does this kind of humor say about  the attitude of the sexes towards each other, and how many of these old stereotypes would the public hold true today?" Feel free to weigh in.

    It is very sexist, but it\’s still funny!

    Well we as a society have been fighting these sterotypes now since the 60\’s.  I think it will take over 100 years for it to die off.  Some things are very hard to change.  You have to remember the average IQ is only 100 and we expect so much of ourselves as a country.  When you keep the 100 in mind than it makes a lot more sense why we vote the way we do and why we watch the TV programs we watch and why we sell main ports into to our country to Arabs.  It just starts to make a lot more sense when you keep that 100 as your filter.
     
    Just my 2 cents worth from another 100…

    Hey thanks for the wishes of good luck! :o)

    Well, my massive IQ tells me that, ahhh..ummm…
    seriously, it starts right back in the playground. I know men and women are born with certain differences (no, not those!), but we do pile on a hell of a lot of stereotyped stuff, most of it negative towards girls,  still designed to rigidly enforce ideas of normality and the status quo, which frankly, I think we\’d do a lot better without, but I guess its that old hangover from our earliest roots taking time to evolve out of us.

    Would it be rude of me to ask where you fit into the above equations?    lol    -very entertaining.

    Good morning, Jorge…
     
    I used to wonder about sexist humor until I realized it has no influence unless it\’s taken seriously. Personally, I ignore it.
     
    I\’ve had to do a lot of growing up, maturing, in order to reclaim my previously forsaken, wicked good sense of humor. I have a man in my life who combines the best qualities of Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, all of the Monty Python gang, and BOTH Don Quixote and his little buddy.
     
    If we were a tv sitcom, we would be Gilligan\’s Island, he, Gilligan; I, The Skipper.
     
    I suspect that we will never die, Jorge…we\’ll just go into syndication…
     
    Peace and Love.

    Very funny…

    I think a joke should be taken as a joke only. A joke isn\’t about sexist attitude or hidden motives, its only about making people laugh.
    And i do feel that the definition of succesful man and woman is true. After all the world moves on money. Personally i\’d also want some love thrown in.
     

  9. Nellie O Apple says:

    heheheheh! As the MONEY turns us in or out!  This is a cool funny joke but can you imagine if you are Donald Trump? I don\’t like him anyway!
    Heh! My opinion 😉

    Interesting.  I couldn\’t post such things at work.  As your friend Suzalita put it "It is very sexist".  She also says "but it\’s still funny".  Yes, we have to learn to laugh at ourselves.  I think it was Miami Hearald humor comunist Dave Barry that said "No matter what you say, some one will find a way to take it seriously."  There comes a point where we all need to learn to laugh at the things we hold sacred.  Otherwise, we can justify war in the name of "Divine Insult".  The world needs to laugh more….and pull the trigger less.
    Best Wishes,
    Joe

    It made me laugh, too.  But part of laughing is knowing where one does and does not fit into the stereotype.  It\’s silly and yet so many are still living by this.
     
    Take care.
    Jaime.

    no matter how we evolve, i still believe men are from Mars and we ladies are from Planet Earth.
     
    hope this weekend last longer for you.

    Things have certainly changed since the sixties…men, women, families…a lot of things go through my head…wondering if we are better off than we were…yes, in most ways probably…but we still have monsters out there preying on women and children…where do they come from?…

  14. Jaime Campbell says:

    Hey Friend,
     
    What exactly is the work that you do?  It\’s cool if you don\’t want to share that, but I\’ve wanted to ask forever…

    Jorge,
     
    I feel that you already know some of my take on this issue.  To me, a woman, although the stereotype says she is to be dependent til the day she dies, should not live up this.  What would happen if the man was to suddenly leave or (worst case scenario) pass away?  How would she support herself?
    In my mind, every individual should ask themselves, "how will I support myself and my family if I were on my own?"
    I never want to wonder that.  I want to be able to support myself and be happy with that choice.  Perhaps, as time goes on, the dawn of the independent woman will only increase.
     
    Take care my friend,

    Just snooping by and i can\’t help but to leave a comment. This is so funny. I\’ve never been good when it comes to maths. But this is one calculation i could understand. Lolx!

  17. the1stephzen says:

    Sigh…I think every generation of Americans at least will understand the humor less and less.  I don\’t know…I hope.

  18. meghna says:

    Thanks for the guys perspective Jorge and i admit you are right but that doesn\’t make me wrong either. I\’ve posted my reply to your comment on my blog and infact someone else did too. Check it out.
     
    take care.

    Yup, sexist, but as others have mentioned: as long as people don\’t take this stuff seriously, no prob…

    PS: not dating my ex-professor, just meeting to talk… The guy is 43, married and has two kids, lol.

  21. Patricia says:

    Hello, Jorge…hope your days are going well…snowing here this morning…looks like it might hang around for a while…

  22. Deirdre says:

    It must be a sad day in America because I can\’t say I disagree with any of them.
     
    I\’m wondering if it is solely attributable to the attitude of the sexes, or if this is induces by our society as a whole.

  23. Deirdre says:

    Sorry about the typo.  I\’m having trouble with the comments screen.  It is skewed to the right and I can\’t see half of my text.

  24. Gayle says:

    Humor is a reflection of the day at hand.  Unfortunately, the sexes haven\’t figured out how to bridge, enjoy and relish their differences.  Women still want men with cash and big cars, men still want women with empty heads and big boobs.  And of course, that\’s and exaggeration, and of course it\’s true.
     
    Stay well – I\’ve got to run, I think I hear a man in his Mercedes blowing his horn!
